I think the “women are mysterious” thing can also come from:
1) Women actually being quite clear, but not telling men what they want to hear.  ”She said she doesn’t want to talk to me?  So many mixed messages and confusing signals!”
2) Women not having cheat codes.  ”I tried being nice, and she didn’t have sex with me.  I tried being an asshole, and she didn’t have sex with me.  Come on, there’s got to be some kind of solution to this puzzle!”
3) Women not being a hive mind.  ”First a woman told me that she likes guys with big muscles.  Then the very next day a woman told me she thinks muscles aren’t attractive at all.  Make up your mind, women!”
4) An individual woman doing something confusing, and instead of asking “why is she doing this now?” men ask “why do women always do this?”


Also for this list:Women saying they don’t want to talk to you/see you/whatever, because they know they shouldn’t but will text you anyway because they are HUMAN and even when they know it’s not in anyone’s best interest attraction makes you do stupid stuffWomen wanting absolutely nothing to do with a guy, telling him something clearly along those lines, then when the guy ignores this and continues pursuit, in order to avoid harassment or, heaven forbid, assault from a butthurt asshole, she politely continues to decline him, perhaps using language that will avoid making him angry. Then it’s definitely still the guy’s fault for not listening. She’s being polite, not telling you “Yes”.

The last picture of me with my piercing before Starbucks forced me to take it out or lose my job. Not feeling bitter or anything…no I’m not mad at all…
